I do a short guided meditation every morning and although I'm supposed to concentrate on my breathing during it, sometimes I... think about stuff.
On this particular morning I was listening to the person in the app, as I do every day. But this time, I was listening to it as a voiceover and it simply made me think "you should make a demo for this sort of stuff".
As with all demo reels, the idea is to show range in a short amount of time. Initially I thought it might be a tough task.
Surely there's only one voice for meditation - slow and soothing!
But actually, it turned out not so tough after all. And that's one of the main points of voice over - not the voice itself, but what you can do with it.
Within this demo there's welcoming and friendly; warm and caring; natural and chilled; slow and soothing (of course!); soft and relaxed.
Yes, they're all closely tied together and the end goal may be the same - to guide someone through a meditation - but there's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say (well, the cat skinners do).
If you have a guided meditation voiceover project in mind, then
